    Maybe one of out lovely CA compressor owners can record one running. I believe they are quiet but not quite as quiet as the tcp global ones you have.

    That's the problem....The MasterAire compressors are fairly quiet, although they get a little louder as the pressure builds. If only the SilentAire were just a little bit cheaper. The 30 TC would be just perfect.

    You sound ok Tony. We all sound weird to our own ears as you only ever hear your own voice through your skull.

    I agree, twood sounds great. No worries.

    I decided to try and 'repair' the MasterAire TC96T. I was able to remove the 'T' relief/pressure sensor fitting. Cleaned it and applied Loctite. It will be completely cured this evening. I should know if it worked by then. Thanks for all the suggestions. CAT seems to be one of the more popular compressor in the airbrush hobby.
